What is Multiminicore disease (MmD)?

  • Multiminicore disease (MmD): A rare congenital muscle disorder involving weakness and wasting of skeletal muscles. The term minicore comes from the small core structures that occur in the muscle tissue. There are four subgroups of the disorder: classic form (rigid spine syndrome), progressive form with hand involvement, antenatal form with arthrogryposis multiplex congenital and the ophthalmoplegic form. The rate of progression and severity of symptoms is variable.

Ophanet, a consortium of European partners, currently defines a condition rare when it affects 1 person per 2,000. They list Multiminicore disease (MmD) as a "rare disease".
